We stayed here for a short break. The whole experience was wonderful. The room although small and compact was immaculately clean. A comfortable bed and great shower room. The only down side was the fact the room6 was at the rear of the hotel and there was no view except the glass roof of the atrium.The breakfasts were very filling... More

Visited the Feathers on numerous occasions for drinks and meals out. For this special treat we booked a weekend bed, breakfast and evening meal. The rooms are fantastic, the bar/restaurant area is so welcoming which reflected the attitude of the staff. Perfectly situated in the centre of the market square of Helmsley and is very popular with walkers. Currently planning... More

Lovely traditional hotel centrally located in the beautiful Yorkshire town of Helmsley. Excellent food and comfortable rooms. Bar space a bit limited but good restaurant areas. Nicely refurbished bedrooms.

Firstly the atmosphere at this hotel is great, both in the bar and the outside drinking area which looks onto the square. Mary on reception was lovely, although she never asked how we had found the room. ( mind you I wouldn't have wanted to ask either!!) That's where the positives end I'm afraid, the hotel on a whole needs... More

Our meal was very disappointing. We have often visited the feathers over the years, but our latest meal was overpriced and not very good. The scampi was not hot, the chips were hard, we were given the wrong side orders and had to ask for pudding menus twice. Our water was forgotten, and generally not very attentive service. What a...

We stayed here for 2 nights, great location, staff very friendly, food good. The only complaint would be the hand held shower but as we were only there 2 nights we managed. Private parking good and plenty of places to visit nearby and Helmsley is a lovely village to wander around.

This was our 4th visit but our first since the takeover by the Coaching Inn Group. We approached slightly nervously but need not have worried. This hotel is even better although it has lost many of its key members of staff however I'm pleased to report that the lovely Mary on Reception is still on board. The new seating area... More
